Flower Farms......

 Can you imagine
living on a flower farm....
 Someone calling to get 
directions to your home -
"Turn left at the red tulips"
" Or turn right at the daffodils"
I think that would be
just perfectly lovely,
although telling folks to
turn left on Nightingale Place
isn't so bad....
My pals, Dale & Leslie, in Washington
sent me these photos today,
I think maybe they should moved
to a tulip farm
&
then I could come and stay 
all spring....

Hopefully by the end of next week
I will have two more blocks 
for the woolly quilt to
share with you.
I have very busy printing patterns,
gave my covers 
a new facelift & nice big photos!

We got to take a trip to McCall, Idaho
this week - the big beautiful
lake was frozen!
Love going up there to visit at
the wool there is amazing.
Took her a good supply of patterns 
for Shop Hop 
of course
Cindy's Quilt Shop has a nice supply too.
Have a glorious week,
weather is perfect now,
no complaints from me....

Antique Quilt Block & Pincushion - March

 
March's block had to be
totally redone to 
be part of the quilt
what do you think?
I don't think the blue & orange
colors would have worked very well.
I am very happy with 
how the whole thing is working 
out - can hardly wait to get 
to the redbird again,
&
wouldn't you know
he will be right in the middle!
Have a great Sunday!

Woolly Quilt Blocks & Pincushions.....

January
Antique Quilt Block 
&
Pincushion
The kind ladies at Cindy's Quilt Shop
came up with the lovely
idea to make my pincushions 
into a quilt.
Their Shop Hop starts in 9 days
and they wanted kits 
ready for all the quilters.
So here we go, January is
ready 
by Thursday I hope to 
have February ready.
If you would like a kit,
you can contact 
the girls at Cindy's,
they should be ready by next week!

I still love the redbird.
I hope to get 3 done by the end of next week,
but a little bunny has taken up

all I have to do is figure out how to 
finish him or her up now....
Have a great weekend!

Woolly Pincushion....

 It always amazes me 
how I get a 
great picture when
its not important .......
&
then when you need a 
perfect picture
the sun is 
on the wrong side of the house
or no where to be seen.....
Today's excuse its in the kitchen
and not where I need it to be
to get that beautiful green wool to
show up perfectly!
I will try again tomorrow -  hopefully
the sun sticks around again...
Its been pretty hit and miss here in Idaho.
I am thinking of changing the names
of these pincushions, instead of numbers
give them a month since there will be 12 altogether.
So this is 
Antique Quilt Pincushion for May
&
I am thinking it might be my favorite,
you know how I love red birds....
This is one of the very first pincushions I
did and its still selling 
like hotcakes!
Hmmmm hotcakes sounds good 
for a Sunday dinner....
Have a lovely week!

Antique Quilt Pincushions.....

Well here I am again,
had just the best time in Washington.
When I flew in, the sun was
shinning on the Sound
and the sun was shinning in my
window on the plane,
I hear that is odd for Washington....
If I ever hit the lotto I would buy
myself and one other person a 
house on the Sound or maybe a house
on one of the islands so I could take a 
ferry everyday across it!
When I got home I promptly got 
sick so today is the first day
my head is not so cloggy so I feel like drawing
and cutting fabric.
I need to get with it now,
Shop Hop is coming and Spring Market is 
coming right behind it.
This pincushion piece is based on
an old Baltimore Album quilt,
I so hope you like it!
Tomorrow I can start the embroidery!
Have a great rest of the week....
